Book Description

"50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading" - Winner

In this beautiful collection of both humorous and heartbreaking stories and poems, Christopher Profeta's unmatched talent for finding uplifting messeages in the chaos of everyday life is on full display. These stories are full of unusual characters looking for acceptance and understanding. Though they don't always find it in the typical places, Profeta's characters always seem to walk away with the love they didn't know they needed.

If you've ever felt alone or misunderstood, remember, there is a Skyful of Love just for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Good, some okay, some a puzzle October 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The short, short stories in this collection are mostly pretty good. Some are simply okay.
However, good poetry, even free verse has a rhythm, a beat, plus images and metaphors that readers can relate to. Much of the poetry in this book puzzled me. I had no idea what the author was talking about.
I expect this author can and will improve in time, however.

4.0 out of 5 stars a nice collection of stories and poetry September 21, 2012
By Greg M.
Format:Kindle Edition
i purchased this book from the author at Horizon Books in Traverse City, Michigan, earlier this year.

the stories are well written and carry a punch. for example, the first story ("The man on the overpass") caused me, at least, no end of consternation, trying to decide "moral or immoral?". i.e., it caused me to think, which is good.

while i liked the poetry, i was generally less impressed by the poetry than i was by the short stories. though i generally liked the sentiments, and the sparse style in which the poetry was written, maybe it didn't carry enough allusions or metaphors for my particular taste.
